Antoine Picon argues that in order to contribute fruitfully to the construction of smart cities, design must start from the changing nature of the urban subject and the urban experience.

Antoine Picon is the G. Ware Travelstead Professor of the History of Architecture and Technology at Harvard Graduate School of Design. He has published numerous books and articles on the relations between architecture and cities on the one hand, science and technology on the other. Among his recent publications are Digital Culture in Architecture: An Introduction for the Design Professions (2010), Ornament: The Politics of Architecture and Subjectivity (2013), and Smart Cities: Théorie et Critique d’un Idéal Auto-Réalisateur(2013).

Antoine Picon was a CCA Mellon Senior Fellow in 2014.
